Being from NY and having the privledge to dine at some of the finest restaurants in the world, this restaurant is one of my top 3. I make it a priority to dine at 1919 every time I am in PR. I would highly recommend the chefs tasting menu. My only disappointment is having to leave.

We arrived at 7pm for our 7:15pm reservation. Champagne was served in the lounge area outside the restaurant where we waited until 8pm to be escorted to our table. The initial drink and food service was a bit slow, and as the night progressed the timing was never spectacular. All courses were finally served a little after 11pm. The water glasses at our table sat empty for 30 minutes before someone noticed. The servers were cordial when they came to the table, however they appeared to be short staffed. Sadly the food was under whelming. After hearing great thing about 1919, this was a very disappointing experience.

$40 for half a piece of cauliflower. This pretty much summarizes my experience at this restaurant.

The food was good but not amazing. The prices were crazy. They charged $15 for a side of 2oz of macaroni for a 2 year old. We spent over $175 for a meal which was fine but nothing special and took over 90m to serve. We left hungry.

If they would lower the prices and speed up the service they would have made a lot more money from us as we would have come back every day of our vacation.

Stated at the Condado Vanderbilt for our honeymoon. The 1919 restaurant was amazing! Quiet atmosphere for romantic dinner or intimate dinner with friends. Service was impeccable. Dinner was out of this world. Portion sizes were well fitting. We did the wine pairing and we had wine glasses still full at the end of our meal. Left with a little gift to say congratulations! William and Jeffery took care of us and they did a wonderful job!!

Outstanding. One of the best meals I’ve had- ever and comparable to some of the best restaurants in the country in Yountville, Napa and NY. Food was outstanding, service was impeccable - highly polished and professional. Compliments to the chef and all the staff. I can’t wait to return!

Super elegant, premium experience. Terrific food. And, on the way out, they gave me a homemade banana nut bread, which was perfect, because I had an early flight the next morning, before my hotel's breakfast was being served. Definitely a place for a special occasion.

Service was subpar. Late on every wine pairing with very little thought as to what to pair. One course was inedible because of too much salt. Seared tuna was over cooked and mussels accompanying were bad. Overall for a $400 dining experience a lot was missing. Hopefully we just got lost in the busy night and this isn’t a true representation of 1919.

Elegant and relaxing. We were in San a juan for a conference at another hotel The Vanderbilt was a peaceful oasis after the noise of the convention. The food was superb. We had the three course dinner which was also a great value. The service from all the staff was perfect. Attentive but not intrusive. We loved the ambiance which was elegant and luxurious. The view was also incredible. I am a Puerto Rico resident and this is now one of my favorite restaurants in San Juan.

Way too over priced for the quality and portion of food. Waiter was condescending when we asked for a different wine and felt the need to emphasis the price before serving it to us. Won’t recommend this place to friends and family even if they’re staying at the Vanderbuilt. If you want better food and more for your money go upstairs to OLA.
